Here is a new option for campers to be able to plug in for very reasonable rates. One person used them in Utah and the rate was $1.00/hour and $1.00 to turn on the electricity.

Imagine some of the possibilities. What if Wal-Mart installed some? What about storage facilities, you could plug your RV in and have it turn on 24 hours before you arive so your refrigerator will be cold when you arrive.

RV parks could use them to upgrade their electrical infrastructrue and then customers could pay only for the electricity they need and it would prevent those showing up late and leaving early without paying. Of corse the rate would have to be higher since the customers might use other facilities that the owner would have to maintain.

What do you think?

Cool idea. National Grid in NY state is installing charging stations in the
Buffalo area. We saw some in the parking lot of Burchfield-Penney (art
museum), but I think they were just for cars. The theory is the people
with electric cars will use them to "top up" while they run errands or
go to museums or such things.

Having charging stations with compatible RV hookups would be awesome.
